Great Location - Great Owners - Perfect spot to see the town and Glacier.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog and I stayed in this house in May of 2015, and it was hard to leave. The location is perfect for walking into town, or even taking the bikes out for a spin on the bike path. It is only 35 minutes from the West entrance to Glacier National Park, too. The owners live a few blocks away in town, and were very responsive to any issues that we had, and offered great advice on things to see and do in town. The pictures are a good representation of the house at its best, but do recognize that this is an older house, so will have some of the small quirks that come along with that, but certainly nothing major. We would definitely consider staying here again, and are trying to figure out how we can make it back in the winter without having to do the drive from Georgia. :)

Wonderful Whitefish cottage -- Repeat customers

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a month in Summer 2013 and we did the same for 5 weeks in Aug. 2014. The cottage is centrally located, within walking distance to Whitefish downtown for shopping and restaurants. The cottage is cozy and airy with nice upgraded bathroom, comfortable queen bed, comfy living room with cable TV, and kitchen with new large refrigerator, washer/dryer, microwave and gas range as well as wireless internet access. We spent many a summer evening eating out on the back patio which is shaded from the sun in the evening. In the evening we open the windows and sleep well in the cool Montana nights.

We spend a lot of time in Glacier National Park and it is a quick 45 minute drive to the Park; and it is an easy drive south to Kalispell for shopping, movies and restaurants. A large modern Safeway is only a half mile away.

I would highly recommend this property for an easy, casual visit to Whitefish and all it has to offer. Matt and Meghan were always available to answer any questions or solve any issue that may come up.

Awesome space, Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house for a month and half, the location is perfect especially for my husband myself and our dog. We came down to have our baby girl so having a house that was walking distance to everything made it perfect! Very much enjoyed our stay the owner Matt was above and beyond helpful and cant wait to come back and stay again!

Great place in Whitefish Town to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a long winter ski trip in 2014, 7 weeks. Really enjoyed this place, would highly recommend, and hope to stay again on a future long ski trip. Its about a 15 minute drive up to Whitefish Mtn Resort. Other than that, the car was parked in the driveway, and I walked everywhere in town. Was great to feel just like I was a resident of the town, walking everywhere, enjoying food, music, drinks, just a few minutes walk from the house. Usually I have rented a condo for my long ski vacations, so it was really great to have a whole house to spread out in and feel to be "at home". Its about double the size of a typical 1BR condo, so i could really spread out, relax, and be comfortable. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom newly renovated and nice. Great to have a washer/dryer conveniently available. Kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook for yourself. A thoroughly enjoyable place to stay.

"Montana is my happy place"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two dogs stayed at the cottage for the month of September 2013. The cottage has so much character and was comfortable and cozy. We had every convenience we do at home.The river across the street and walking paths were great. There is a park within walking distance as is downtown with the Farmers Market, shops and restaurants. Matt and Megan brought coffee beans, huckleberries, waffle mix and creamer the first day we arrived and their hospitality continued through our stay. Matt even put up a temporary fence for the dogs! We were in MT to look for a home and he gave us the name of a realtor who was patient and helpful. We hope by spring we will be Whitefish's a beautiful and warm city and can't wait to return.

Awesome cottage in an awesome vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our baby girl, had a wonderful vacation at the cottage. Just a few blocks from the nice downtown area (restaurants, ice cream, farmer's market, etc.), right next to Whitefish river, close to Whitefish lake and beaches, and just 30 minutes from Glacier NP. House had all the necessary amenities (and lots of old charm), and a half-dozen large cherry trees in the back yard (made two delicious cherry pies!), and the back patio was great for dinners. Owner was very helpful, responded quickly to our requests, and gave us great recommendations. Would love to stay again!
